One more thing , if you do not reboot after many MS updates you do not apply all patches until you reboot , therefore leaving yourself with false sense of protection .
No--you are clueless. Not all updates require reboots, same Linux, same as OS X. Not sure why you think they do, but keep on trucking being ignorant.
Your second link is not found. Blind google much?
As for the London Stock Exchange having problems due to a catastrophic failure, as they put it---methinks the IT staff don't know what redundancy is.
That can happen with ny server OS.
Once again, weak arguments. Let me do some blind googling as well, just to counter them.

See? I can use the Internet to say whatever I want. I could keep going, but there isn't a lot of point.
Learn to think for yourself, and formulate your own argument.
If its KDE 4.3--I am sorry, it may be pretty, but its far from as efficient as the Windows or OS X UI.
This just solidifies my stance that Linux caters to the geek more than common consumer.
I find it hilarious that your fanboy attitude blinds you to the point of my argument:
I never said Linux sucks, so why are you trying to convince me otherwise?
Linux is not ready for the average consumer, and won't be until it changes its target audience.
